Butter each slice of bread on both sides and fry on a griddle over low heat until golden brown.
Toss together the berries, granulated sugar, lemon juice and orange liqueur. Let stand for 10–15 minutes.
Meanwhile, whip Kemps Heavy Cream to soft peaks. Add in powdered sugar and whip to medium peaks. Set aside.
